    I think there might be less applications but I assume the Calgary staff are gonna be dragging ass.

    The filtering urgent requests gives me hope, but 2 applications and 4 days off work seems like government service at its finest.

    Wife told me a crazy story though, once you get in the second room they line you up in chairs and shuffle people down as they take the smaller groups into the actual passport office. Some lady in front of my wife went to the washroom or something for 20 minutes around noon, lost her chair in the shuffle so they put her at the last chair in the 2nd waiting room. She didn’t make the final cut to see anyone at 2:30 when they sent everyone past the last 20 or so home. So lined up at 5, waited in line for 8 hours and told to come back another day. Was kinda her fault, but also bad timing, and despite people vouching for her it sounds like there wasn’t any slack.

    lol, breaking news, Herr Trudeau has finally announced a plan to plan a solution.

    "The task force will drive action to improve the processing of passports and immigration applications by identifying priority areas for action and outlining short- and longer-term solutions, with a focus on reducing wait times, clearing out backlogs, and improving the overall quality of services provided to Canadians."

    Shouldn't that have been done over 3 months ago? I guess he was too busy planning his trip to Rwanda to take notice as to what actual Canadians are up to.

    That's mean. I think it's obvious that for the past 3 months, Heir Justin was planning who would be on the committee that would then embark on the selection process for the task force .
    *Along with reviewing and approving the committee members selection and recommendations.

    Biggest improvement could be their intake. Again, wasn’t there, but on the first appointment, wife spent about 20minutes with someone who went over all her documents, and a big checklist in 3-4 minutes then spent 15 minutes opening a file for the application.
    Last appointment she was told all they do when generating a file is basically create the file for the file number and add your name. Either the creation process in unexplainable long, or complicated or he kept screwing up. But you should be able to create a new record, enter a name, and scan the 4-5 required documents in 15 minutes. All they did in that 20 minute session was open the file, visually skim the documents then put the whole package in an envelope to get lost out East.

    At least if it was digital they could near instantly transfer the file to another office and do any digital work for printing at the 2nd location instead of waiting for the physical file to be re-found, scanned, transferred then prepped for printing.

    That's a new one. We're same situation, and we just have to present the court documents. We actually have to bring all the docs whenever we travel, but never had to contact the dad.
    New for me as well. We are a blended family as well and the bio father wasn't called at all. They wouldn't forward the application until they spoke with him. Perhaps it was a one of.

    In good news, wife got a call late yesterday afternoon to say the passport should be ready at 1:00 today. She showed up around 12 and there seemed like 100 people in front of her at the pickup line but it seemed to move reasonably fast. By around 245 she had the passport so we are good to go for Monday.

    Not a one off, 2021 revisions to family law resulted in a lot of court orders needing to be updated. As there's new words and phrases to be used - that in most cases aren't in the <2021 orders. And a lot of the government agencies now look for those specific words/phrases - even mine (written 6-7 weeks after changes were enacted) - there's issues with one specific word that's in a sentence dispensing with consent - so it's a useless line now because the phrase isn't exactly as they want to see it.
